Rated 1 out of 5 by CCCC Rubbish.
Riding in cold (6C) dry weather and I was soaked after a 45min climb. Some odd rubbery finish on the inside of the jacket makes it unpleasant next to the skin too and stops it breathing. As a non-water proof jacket I would expect it to breath really well - not the case. Not even slightly shower proof either. Avoid.
The cut is not great. Baggy in the body with a short back - I'm 5'10'', 165lbs and bought M. Arm length is good. Packs down well (in to a stupid separate pouch - I just pack it in to it's back pocket and that works well). The contrast colour zip looks good.
A case of form over function. Looks like it can straight of the drawing board into production without any testing.
